Person of Interest in Aguilar Disappearance Arrested
Published September 24th, 2012
GAINESVILLE - The lone person of interest in the disappearance of University of Florida student Christian Aguilar, 18, has been arrested and charged with "Depriving a Victim of Medical Care."
Pedro Bravo was taken into custody early Monday evening, right after he was released from a mental facility. He's been in that facility since Saturday, when he was involuntarily checked-in under Florida's Baker Act, which requires an individual to undergo a mental evaluation if there is sufficient proof they will harm themself or others. According to police, Bravo made threats against his own life after he was questioned in this case last week.
Bravo is the last person believed to have seen Christian Aguilar alive, and so far he has been unable to provide police with any information that could help lead them to Christian. Bravo did hire a lawyer over the weekend, which could be an indication that he plans to fight this charge as well as any additional ones.
Bravo is being held in the Alachua County jail on a $100,000 bond. He will make his first appearance in court on Tuesday morning.
